For those who are not familiar with Excel, the first video of the **Excel 2013 Statistical Analysis for Business & Economics Playlist **at Excelsfun is very good.

Start with **Excel 2013 Statistical Analysis #00: Excel Workbooks For This Class ** (2:07 minutes). This short video gives an explanation of how to quickly navigate within the longish Excel 2013 Statistical Analysis #01. This is the Excel workbook that is used for the first two videos: Workbook

Although it is long, **Excel 2013 Statistical Analysis #01: Using Excel Efficiently For Statistical Analysis (100 Examples)** gives an excellent introduction to Excel, from the very basics of spreadsheets to Pivot Tables and charts.

Next watch video #2 to learn how to activate

the statistical analysis add-in that is very useful for this course:

**Excel 2013 Statistical Analysis #2: Install Data Analysis Add-in For Amazing Excel Statistical Tools** (1:14 minutes) Workbook

If you want shorter videos on the basics of Excel (and more complex topics), try the **Excelsfun video series**. Be sure to watch the 2:30 intro video as it will show you how to quickly navigate the Excelsfun YouTube page to find what you need.
